Pokemon Sword and Shield Glimwood Tangle

At the entrance of Glimwood Tangle, there is a path splitting in two directions. Take the path to the left and you will move until you spot Cook Derek, who is hiding in the bushes.

Cook Derek is looking for mushrooms, so it actually makes sense he’s hanging out in the dark woods. You will face off his Shiinotic, Milcery, and Sinistea. Defeat them to go ahead.

After defeating Cook Derek, move south until you come across the Daring Couple Robert and Jacqueline. Now you can take on the two trainers stood throwing balls in the air.

You will face off their Ninetales and Kirlia Pokemons in a dual battle. Defeat them by attacking Ninetales with water attacks and Kirlia with bug or poison. (This fight is optional).

After defeating them, take the path on the left and go up. Here you will face off the last trainer in the area which is Madame Judy. She will release two Indeedees. Defeat them by using a Pokemon with Bug or dark moves.

These will be all the encounters in Glimwood Tangle.
